L'actualité politique et humanitaire récente rappelle le bienfondé des axes de la recherche choisis par la Fondation Croix-Rouge, qu'il s'agisse de la transition humanitaire, des principes éthiques pour l'action et des relations étroites entre les missions humanitaires et sociales. L'essentiel est toujours d'innover dans la lutte contre les vulnérabilités humaines. C'est toute la responsabilité du Conseil scientifique que d'assurer le choix puis le suivi des travaux retenus afin d'en garantir la qualité et la pertinence.
